“We have Best Fitness in the house with four of their best trainers in the Capital District,” said Jared DeGroff, Marketing Manager and Personal Trainer at Best Fitness. “They’re coming and doing a Be Fit class, a hit-style workout with four stations and different equipment.”

Including new OMORPHO weighted vests for participants to try on to help bring workouts to the next level.

“It’s all about people finding their fitness community,” Pigliavento said. “Sometimes you just want to walk. And that’s their fitness, and that’s okay. We will help you find your community. That’s what we’re here to do.”

Mike Smith, Executive Director of DICK’S Sporting Goods House of Sport, said these events are all about engaging with the community with activities.

“It’s about getting involved in the community, bringing them in, and having fun,” Smith said. “Finding different ways to engage with them, whether through sports, fitness classes, or golf with our simulators… Whatever that looks like.”
